Amazon’s Prime Day anniversary event is here! Some deals will last until Tuesday night, some will be gone in a flash. It’s the craziest shopping event since the week before Black Friday.

Amazon’s Prime Day anniversary event is here! Some deals will last until Tuesday night, some will be gone in a flash. It’s the craziest shopping event since the week before Black Friday.

Don’t forget to sign up for Prime if you haven’t yet!

We’ve been combing the previews for stuff you might actually want to buy. We’ll be featuring products we’ve reviewed or tested, and filtering out “deals” that aren’t much better than typical discount prices.

Don’t forget to check out our list of tips and tricks to make the most of Amazon’s offerings.

How we’re selecting the deals

We’ve got a few rules we’ll stick with for items we post here.

No Junk: We’re only posting deals for items we know to be worth buying. If we haven’t tested the items ourselves (our site is still pretty small), we may rely on the reviews of other credible experts to recommend a product.

This means we’ll mostly shying away from categories like appliances, TVs and laptops, since it’s difficult to know how well some “bargains” will suit your needs.

Only real deals: if a price doesn’t drop below typical seasonal sale prices, we won’t list it. We’re also checking prices at other major retailers.
